Double-D Breast Implant Deflects Bullet
…NRA Cries Foul
A miraculous combination of manufactured voluptuousness, luck and tensile strength saved Lydia Carranza’s life last summer when a bullet fired point-blank at her heart was deflected by her double-D breast implant.
After seven months of healing, Carranza was scheduled to undergo reconstructive surgery last Friday.
Carranza’s Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Ashkan Ghavami, told KTLA News he believes “her implant stopped the bullet from hitting her heart. The bullet fragments were millimeters from her heart and her vital organs. If not for the implant, she might not be alive.” He added that the implant absorbed much of the bullet’s impact, limiting most of the damage to the breast itself.
NRA Issues Response
Upon hearing of Carranza’s close call, the National Rifle Association (NRA) issued the following statement to its membership:
“Although we are glad that Ms. Carranza is alive and well, we at the NRA feel we must address the growing problem of bullet-deflection by breast enhancement implants.
We believe the 2nd Amendment gives all Americans the right not only to own and use firearms, but according to our legal experts’ interpretation, it also carries an implicit protection of the right to hit intended targets without fear of ballistic deflection caused by cosmetic medical devices–devices that, left unchecked, could very well send us hurtling down a slippery slope to total gun confiscation in America.
In our ongoing struggle to protect your Constitutional rights, the NRA feels obligated to bring this issue to your attention. As more American women opt for this type of procedure, the possibility of bullet trajectory impairment grows. After all our efforts on behalf of American gun owners, including the defense of your right to own 30-round handgun clips, 50-round assault rifles, armor-piercing ammunition and untraceable cartridges, we believe it would be irresponsible to drop the ball on the issue of bullet deflection by breast implant.
As always, you can be sure your NRA is on the job, defending your right to total gun freedom in America.
To the manufacturers of bullet-deflecting implants and doctors who specialize in these types of anti-gun procedures: Know that the National Rifle Association has you in our sights.”
